Legions of riders have embraced the Mission during its decade-plus reign because it continually smokes the competition when it comes to comfortable and reliable response. The workhorse of Burton’s binding lineup offers pro-grade features like ergonomic highbacks featuring zero Forward Lean and undoubtedly the best straps and buckles in the industry. Go with Re:Flex™ and ride the Missions with any board in the shop – not just Burton´s!
The simplicity of a one-piece hi-back means immediate response. This ergonomic Canted Hi-Back design follows the natural contours of your left and right legs to maximise control and comfort. Riders who prefer a more playful and relaxed feel will dig the Zero Forward Lean design on select hi-backs. As always, you can still choose to crank ‘em forward for quicker control when carving or climbing icy pipe walls. The higher the Forward Lean angle on your hi-backs, the quicker your heel edge turns. Crank ’em forward for icy hits in the pipe, or back ’em off for jibbing. For mind-blowing micro-adjustability, the DialFLAD™ system gives you twice the options of the traditional FLAD. Living Hinge™ technology eliminates hardware and weight and allows you to adjust your Forward Lean and hi-back rotation independently.
Re:Flex™ offers more flex and board feel than traditional disc bindings. The minimised, cored baseplate reduces weight and expands the cushioning potential. A Single-Component Baseplate construction throughout creates a consistent response and feel for all-terrain domination. The 30 % Short-Glass/Nylon Composite material is slightly more responsive than the Park Blend yet still very playful. FullBED cushioning offers a full coverage, cushioned platform that maximises comfort while minimising fatigue. Anchored to the baseplate, its stealth trap door design makes it easy to access the mounting hardware. An under-Baseplate Dampening Pad eats up vibrations and impacts so your body doesn’t have to.
The Reactstrap™ construction features a 3D® Curved, Triple Axis Spine with Enduro Padding and an improved wrap for constant contact with the boot. A Flex Slider makes strapping in a breeze with a strategically stretched hinging zone that allows the heel strap to flex and fall fully open. Thanks to the science of forced molecular alignment, the Flex Slider is also stronger, making it worthy of Burtons LIFETIME WARRANTY. The Gettagrip Capstrap™ wraps around the toe of the boot for a locked-in fit and pressure-free comfort. The Smooth Glide™ Buckle Technology features lightweight aluminium and lightweight polycarbonate levers which give you seasons of buttery smooth and reliable ratcheting power.
